“I’m planning a Michael Jackson concert in Mumbai” – Jermaine Jackson


The softspoken Jermaine – speaking at a low decibel runs in the family – doesn’t mind being asked questions about his legendary brother.


In fact, Jermaine is happy to reveal that he’s planning a very special homage to Michael “We’ll do concerts in Michael’s memory in various parts of the world, including Mumbai which is now one of my favourite cities,” enthuses Jermaine who’s just had taste of Mumbai and Bollywood and loved every bit of it.


Jermaine and Adnan Sami were supposed shoot a song on the streets of Mumbai on Tuesday. But the rain Gods had other plans. So the music video was postponed. But Jermaine didn’t mind just hanging around, getting to know Mumbai with his dear friend Adnan Sami.


Jermaine, who is in Mumbai right now to record a tribute to the city, is surprisingly warm on questions on Michael. “Everywhere I go I see this overwhelming love for Michael. That’s equally true of Mumbai,” informs the gentle Jermaine as he jams with Adnan over the song that’s begun to crystallize in the T-Series recording studio.


Says Jermaine, “We were supposed to record the song in LA. But on Adnan’s suggestion we decided to relocate it to Mumbai and make it a tribute to Mumbai. I’m so glad we did that. Mumbai is such a vibrant city. I love the feel of the city. I love the food; I’m very fond of the entire Bollywood culture, the songs dances and colours.”


Sounding ultra-excited, Jermaine admits it’s been a trying time for the Jackson family after Michael’s death. “Adnan has been a friend first then a musical partner. We’ve interacted for four years. And now I’m finally here in Mumbai. This is my first visit to Mumbai. And it feels wonderful. The song is shaping up well. And we’re enjoying the process of doing it.”


Jermaine intends to visit the famous spots in the rest of the country. “We’ll do all of that once the music is done.”
